    Special Issue on Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease


    When gingivitis is left untreated, it can advance to periodontitis. In a person with periodontitis, the inner layer of the gum and bone pull away from the teeth and form pockets. These small spaces between teeth and gums collect debris and can become infected. The body's immune system fights the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring gingivitis and periodontal disease. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Gingivitis
    • Periodontitis
    • Risk factors
    • Signs and symptoms
    • Medications
    • Initial therapy
    • Surgical treatments
    • Gum disease prevention


    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal at Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue – Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease” should be selected during your submission.
